Senior Portraits​

I work with you to create images that you and your family will cherish for a lifetime. My goal is to provide you with an experience you will enjoy and that is tailored to your own needs and personality. Whether you want something quick and simple close to home or you want to take a trip to the beach, we will design a session that suits you.

Chip's No-Hassle Approach

I like to keep things simple and make the portrait experience enjoyable for everyone. No complicated packages, expensive prints, or lots of little extra charges to get what you want.

So I do things a little differently from traditional senior photographers.

  • Simple fixed fee with no hidden costs or sales pressure
  • All digitals delivered with full printing rights
  • 100% satisfaction assurance: if I can’t make it right, I’ll refund your money

Standard Senior Session

Most seniors look forward to getting their senior portraits taken, even if they may be a bit apprehensive about the process. My goal is to put you at ease and produce images that you want to share.

  • A photography session of about 90 minutes
  • Unlimited outfit changes during the session
  • Gallery of 50+ digital images that are yours to keep, share, and print
  • Additional edits and retouching included for up to 10 favorites you select

The Standard Senior Session costs $499.

Senior Athlete Package

If you’re an athlete and want to have great senior portraits but also want to showcase your participation in your favorite sport, an additional in-season session is the answer.

  • Everything in the Standard Senior Session
  • Additional in-season sports portrait session of about 30 minutes
  • Wear your team uniform and bring equipment/props
  • Gallery of 25+ additional digital images from the sports session
  • Edits and retouching for up to 5 favorites you select from the sports session

The Senior Athlete Package costs $699.

Quick & Simple Session

Some seniors (like my sons) only grudgingly agree to have their pictures taken. We will get you in and out while still creating great images.

  • A photography session of about 30 minutes
  • One simple outfit change during the session
  • Gallery of 20+ digital images that are yours to keep, share, and print
  • Additional edits and retouching included for up to 5 favorites you select

The Quick & Simple Session costs $299.

All Senior Portrait Experiences Include
  • Location to be mutually agreed
  • No travel cost within 30 minutes of Bow, NH
  • High resolution digital images with printing rights
  • Convenient access to prints or products with no obligation to buy
When it came to senior pictures, Chip truly excelled in bringing out the personality and style of each of our sons. He worked with us to find the perfect location for the photo shoots and the sessions were relaxed and fun. The final images were simply beautiful.

[Chip's] flexible and low-key approach immediately put our son at ease and resulted in a session that was much more relaxed and enjoyable than expected. We love our photos and have now scheduled a Senior Portrait session with Chip for our second son.

Frequently Asked Questions

When you book your session, we will mutually agree on a location. It could be a public park or similar setting, a private residence, or pretty much anywhere you can imagine. We have been to farms, parks, ponds, beaches, and more.

We’re pretty flexible and as long as we have permission to be somewhere we should be able to make it work. If it is more than a 30-minute drive from Bow, NH there will be a travel charge.

A few popular locations include White Park (Concord), Hampton Beach State Park, Azalea Park (Henniker), and Downtown Concord.

The primary deliverable provided is the digital downloads of the images we make during the session. Links to SmugMug or similar services may be provided for your convenience, but you are also free to take the files to the printer of your choice.

Chip is usually accompanied by his wife, Jen, who helps with logistics and lighting. You will also get to know Jen through the pre-session planning that she faciliates.

Sometimes the weather doesn’t cooperate or someone gets sick. If that happens, we will work with you to find a mutually acceptable alternate date and time. There is no rebooking fee.

Please arrive at your scheduled session ready to start taking photos. Your first outfit and any hair/makeup preparation should be all set.

You should bring a brush/comb and 1-2 outfit changes. The number and extent of outfit changes possible is largely dependent on the availability and proximity of a changing area at the chosen location.

It is often helpful to have a friend or family member present to offer feedback and assist in carrying outfit changes or other essentials. A large group can be distracting, however, so it is best to limit the number of people accompanying the individual being photographed.

Minors must be accompanied by a parent or other responsible adult authorized in advance.

We’re happy to work with you to use the session time as you prefer. In keeping with a no-hassle approach, we don’t charge extra if you want to have a few extra photos with family members or friends. We do encourage you to keep it to a minimum so that the focus remains on the senior or whomever the primary subject of the session might be.

After the session, we select a variety of images showing different locations, poses, and expressions. We then apply edits to them before sharing them with the client.

Once you have a chance to review the images, you can request a reasonable amount of edits to them. Typically this might involve re-cropping, changing the dimensions, removing a distracting object or blemish, or other similar requests. We will also convert to black and white or adjust color tone upon request (and often include examples in the preview images so you can see what different treatments can do).

If you’re not happy with our work, we will do everything reasonably possible to make it right. This should be an enjoyable experience for you that creates lasting memories. If you still aren’t satisfied and we can’t change that, we will happily refund your fee. 

We pride ourselves on excellent customer service and can be reached at contact@photosbychip.com.
